MSC Divina Overview

Launched in 2012, the MSC Divina is a luxury Fantasia Class cruise ship. She was inspired and christened by Sophia Loren, the renowned Italian film actress. This beautiful ship lives up to her godmother’s sophisticated reputation; the interior decor is stunning, the service delightful and the overall at-sea experience one of a kind.

The MSC Divina specs
A grand, spacious vessel, the MSC Divina weighs 139,072 tonnes, measures 1,092 feet in length and spans 18 decks. She accommodates 3,959 passengers and 1,388 crew. Her maximum cruising speed is 23.75 knots.

Inside the MSC Divina
The MSC Divina exudes elegance, glamour and sophistication. As soon as you step inside, be prepared to be blown away by her beauty and charm. A large, luxurious vessel, the MSC Divina definitely has the ‘wow factor’.

The interior decor is of incredibly high quality, from the marble finishings to the shiny glass elevators. Even the staircases are decorated with stunning Swarovski crystals. The atmosphere on board is undoubtedly elegant, but definitely not stuffy. The dress code is casual, except for formal and themed evenings, such as ‘70s night.

Things to do on board the MSC Divina
Traditional cruise activities abound, from trivia competitions in the cozy Black and White Lounge, to live entertainment in the glitzy Piazza Del Doge. The cruise line has also done well to incorporate some unique entertainment offerings. Want to see what it’s like to drive a racecar? You can do this on board - just head to Deck 16, where you’ll find a Formula 1 Simulator. It’s little touches like this that make the MSC Divina stand out from the crowd.

MSC Divina restaurants and bars
When it comes to dining, the MSC Divina has taken a rather traditional approach. Guests can choose from two main dining rooms with set dinner times (6.30pm and 8.30pm), as well as an extensive buffet and a selection of specialty restaurants, including an Italian steakhouse. There is enough choice to keep everyone happy without it seeming overwhelming, creating a relaxed dining environment where the focus is exactly where it should be: on the delicious food.

There are several bars and lounges on board, from casual venues like the American Sports Bar (also a great place to grab a snack) to La Luna Pub, an elegant piano bar. The bars are well-stocked with quality wines, beers and spirits, as well as a variety of non-alcoholic beverages.

MSC Divina itineraries and shore excursions
The MSC Divina splits her schedule between Europe and the Pacific Coast. The shore excursions available will therefore depend on your chosen destination.

The European cruises largely visit ports in Spain, France and Italy. With these itineraries in mind, a lot of the shore excursions tend to be cultural visits to museums, art galleries and so forth, but there is also a good mix of outdoor pursuits. Some examples include a private tour of the Vatican Museum in Rome and a walk through the Old Town in Nice, France.

Cruises along the Pacific Coast call into ports in the United States, Mexico, Barbados, the Bahamas, as well as many more. The excursions available on these trips are truly varied, with everything from snorkeling in Antigua to a food tour of Little Havana in Miami.

Cabins on board the MSC Divina

The MSC Divina has a range of accommodation options to suit all budgets and preferences. Standard staterooms start at 138 square feet (interiors) and go up to 317 square feet (balcony cabins, including verandahs). All standard cabins are equipped with basic amenities such as televisions, hair dryers, minibars, safes, toiletries and ample storage space.

There are several suite categories, starting at around 220 square feet and going up to 480 square feet. These rooms are more spacious and luxurious than a standard cabin, however if you are looking for a truly special accommodation option then the Yacht Club is the place to be. Described as a ship within a ship, the exclusive Yacht Club offers top-of-the-range accommodation in a private location. If you stay in the Yacht Club, you benefit from a range of perks, including access to private retreats, restaurants and even a small pool.

Entertainment on board the MSC Divina cruise ship

The MSC Divina by day
Daytime entertainment tends to centre around the Piazza Del Doge, the social hub of the ship. There’s always something happening here, whether you’re in the mood for live entertainment or would prefer to sit back and enjoy a coffee in one of the bustling cafes. Other great places to spend the day include the library, the boutique shopping area, the Cybercafe and the 4D Cinema.

Pools, spas and fitness facilities on board the MSC Divina
There are several pools to choose from on the MSC Divina. The main pool area is large, spacious and family-friendly, while the Le Sirene Pool is covered and can be enjoyed in all weather. The Garden Pool is a must-visit; an adults-only infinity pool, it has some of the best sea views on board. There is also a great bar here.

The Aurea Spa is one of the largest at sea, measuring close to 20,000 square feet. In this vast space you will find a range of beauty treatment rooms, a fitness centre, a sauna, a steam room, as well as a beauty salon and other related facilities. You could easily spend a whole day exploring this complex; start the morning with a workout at the gym, wind down in the steam room and enjoy some pampering before dinner at the spa and salon. If you’d prefer to exercise outside, the sports courts are great for a game of basketball, and there is a power walking track on Deck 15.

MSC Divina nightlife
The ship has an excellent nightlife scene, with a range of glitzy bars and lounges to choose from. For live entertainment, the Pantheon Theatre is a brilliant night out, featuring production shows. You might even see an acrobatic performance, depending on the cruise ship’s entertainment schedule.

Other great venues for live entertainment include the Black and White Lounge, which has a live band, and the Golden Jazz Bar, home to Karaoke tournaments and two pianos. Both of these venues have a dance floor and stay open late.

The MSC Divina for families
Families are made to feel extremely welcome on board the MSC Divina - especially children under the age of 11, who sail for free! The MSC cruise line works hard to ensure its children’s programmes are of exceptional quality.

Kids’ activities are organised by age: MSC Baby Time for ages 10 months to 3 years, Mini Club Sailors for ages 3 to 6, Junior Club Pirates for ages 7 to 11, Y-Team for ages 12 to 14 and MSC Generation Teen Club for ages 15 to 17. Trained supervisors put on an array of fun, age-appropriate activities, from arts and crafts for the little ones to sports tournaments and dancing competitions for the teens.

There are also plenty of places for the whole family to hang out on board the MSC Divina. The ship boasts several family rooms, as well as a waterslide, a sports court and a video arcade. Parents and children can eat together in one of the main dining rooms. If you want to enjoy a leisurely meal without your little ones, you can arrange for them to eat with other children at the buffet. Private in-cabin babysitting is not available, but the children’s area is often open for activities in the evening, which acts as a form of group babysitting.

I have enjoyed visiting as much of the world as possible over the years. Europe and the Mediterranean are personal favourites, but there is so much to see very close to our little Australasian corner of the globe- one of my top travel experiences was snorkeling with tropical fish and turtles in New Caledonia! Cruising is a fantastic way to see it all, and we hope to make booking a cruise easier for both first-timers and old salts. From ship tips to destination news and views, we will keep you up-to-date. Happy cruising!
